"news international" has responded to the reports saying they have seen no evidence that these allegations are true. joining me to talk about it more nationally is syndicated radio host michael smerconish, and originally, we were heard that he would not be available, but now we will hear from rupert murdoch who was criticized by many who say he should have come out and said more sooner. >> what is interesting about this, tamron, you made reference to the concern of some that p
was one of the first people arrested over the hacking scandal within rupert murdoch's media empire. >> with 20/20 hindsight and all that has followed, would i not have offered him the job, and i expect that he wouldn't have taken it. >> cameron says he regrets his decision to hire coulson and once again denies claims that his staff tried to stop an investigation into the phone hacking. more live from london with the latest. so does this get the heat off of the prime minister? >> reporter: well, tamron, it's been an incredibly difficult day for david cameron, but the consensus here in the uk is that he dealt with it pretty well. he tackled the question of why he hired andy coulson, the former editor of "news of the world" as his communications director and he didn't exactly apologi apologize. he said, of course, i regret it and i'm sorry for the furor it's called. >> the opposition leader didn't like what he said saying it showed him a catastrophic error in judgment but as a counter if it had ever come to light that andy coulson had lied to him and was found guilty of anything to de
. greatly appreciate it. and media mogul rupert murdoch and his son have been summoned to appear before the uk parliamentary committee after the tabloid "news of the world" ends, and also today, gordon brown is accusing the newspaper to employ criminals about private information about his son's health and private finances. stephanie gosk is here with new details. so every year, this is ramping up. many thought it would end sunday with the "news of the world" shutting down, but that is not the case, stephanie. >> no, tamron. there are new allegations appearing in "the new york times" that actually "news of the world" reporters used scotland yard police officials to ping people they were following or were interested in. that means they used actual cell phone towers to locate some of the celebrities or politicians that they wanted to follow. these are incredibly incriminating allegations that just go to show how wide the scope of this is, and how high up it goes within scotland yard and you mentioned today that the scotland yard investigators were in a hearing in parliament today facing to
is the heir apparent of r rupert murdoch. and this statement says that apparently, ak unshs taken years ago by certain individuals in what had been a good newsroom have breached the trust that the news of the world has with its readers. there is one line that struck me in the long statement of 1,500 words, james murdoch said about the things that they said to the investigators and parliament were not strictly true, and that was not good. and the payments out of a come -- compensation fund were up to seven figures were even hush money type payments, and he said that was wrong and he did not know the circumstances. but this is what james murdoch said that got to me, he said that the news of the world and news international failed to get to the bottom of repeated wrongdoing without legitimate conscious and purpose, and what he is saying in a sense is that the hacking of the cell fon pho and the mail accounts was a routine activity and not to just route out outcomes of story, but to produce stories especially people in the throes of grief, and having their voice mails eaves dropped by people wh
